The greatest delusion of all by Americans is that if the US goes down, the whole world will go down with it.
The destruction of Babylon or Rome did not end all life on Earth.
When the British Empire broke up, the rest of the world did fine afterwards.
When the USSR collapsed, the rest of the world did just great then too
When the US empire self destructs, the rest of world will hardly even notice.
In most other countries we find all this fairly interesting, but it will not effect us in the slightest..
America has lost every single war it has started over the last sixty years.
EVERY SINGLE WAR.
Think about that.........
The only battles America have ever won have been as a small part of United Nations multinational forces.
With other nations to help hold America's hand, you can do your share quite well. But by yourselves you always lose.
Never go down economically ?
Economically? Never more than anyone else. Not trying to be smug or bias, but if you understand the world and its politics, its basically impossible for the U.S. to fail more than other world powers. It will never be America falling flat on its face while the rest of the world prospers. Its just not the way the current order is set up.
The delusion that America is the wealthiest and most powerful nation on Earth is not just untrue, it is completely laughable.
but it really irritates me When Americans claim they are the richest and most powerful nation on Earth.
"America has lost every war for the last 60 years"
etc., etc., then there is no reason to continue with this...just go on your merry way and be done with this thread.
that the rest of the world will be fine if America collapses financially
